Mumbai, February 24, 2022 – Gupshup, a leader in conversational engagement, announced a technology partnership with Truecaller, the leading global platform for verifying contacts and blocking unwanted communications to empower enterprises with access to advanced business identity solutions. With this partnership, brands will enable a secure voice communication ecosystem to better engage with consumers and improve their overall calling experience.
With unsolicited calls and messages on the rise, mobile users are finding it difficult to distinguish unwanted calls and genuine calls or messages from brands they want to engage with leading to incomplete or unproductive consumer outreach. To address this, Gupshup and Truecaller will bring the Verified Business Caller Identity solution to businesses. The association will help brands deliver personalized voice calls to customers, with a logo, verified tick, call reason and green badge with Truecaller caller identification for more meaningful engagement between brands and consumers.

The Verified Business Caller Identity solution will help businesses add more credibility to their consumer communication. With contextual information provided through a verified identity, the scope of identity theft and phishing are significantly reduced”, said Ravi Sundararajan, Chief Operating Officer, Gupshup. “Together, we will help our enterprise customers strengthen user trust, satisfaction and make communication truly work for their brand.”
The Verified Business Caller Identity solution works seamlessly across Android & iOS caller IDs and offers businesses a self-service dashboard to easily manage business numbers and access insights for calling patterns to understand the health of a brand’s calling process.
